Mastering the Mix of Modern and Rustic in Bohemian Home Decor

Rugs, side tables, accessories, and more… the possibilities can be a bit overwhelming.

We all love ourselves some bohemian décor, but the hard part is feeling like you successfully pulled it off. Luckily, we are here to help with the process of making your ultimate décor dream come to life. With some helpful tips on western-chic touches and free-flowing bohemian décor, we will have you feeling like an interior design pro in no time.

Bohemian décor is a mixture of textures, colors, and patterns. The ability to flow freely with your own personal style throughout this process is vital. While, yes, there are some rules to assist you, there truly is no right or wrong when it comes to it. The style as a whole is a heavy mixture of textiles, distressed/mismatched furniture, and bright colors… don’t be afraid to get groovy with it!

There are a few things to do before you dive in. First, refine your color palette and start with a base of neutral tones. This will help with the base construction of the layout and prevent you from feeling too overwhelmed. Next, add a few pops of color to incorporate throughout the room. This will give the room a welcoming and fun feel. Some popular colors are blue, fuchsia, green, yellow, and red. Again, don’t be afraid to have some fun; this is your personal space.

Essential Furniture for Boho Decor

Choose pieces of furniture to have as the more neutral ones that aren’t exactly statement pieces of the room. A solid color couch is a perfect starting point. You’re able to spice it up a bit by adding your favorite decorative pillows and fluffy throw blankets. This adds some dimension to the room.

When deciding on a coffee table, the possibilities are endless. It’s a perfect opportunity to incorporate that rustic style by adding some stained wood into the mix. It could be some wooden crates you brought back to life or more of a statement piece that will have guests begging you to tell them where you snatched up such a piece.

Accent chairs are a great way to add some flair into the room. Whether it be bright solid colors or more rugged textured pieces, accent chairs are the perfect furniture to unleash your wild side. They pop in a room without commanding the whole space.

Rugs for Some Rustic Spunk

Adding rugs into the mix is where the real fun begins. You can be subtle with your selection or go all out. Bohemian décor is all about breaking the rules — you want a green chair with a purple and turquoise rug? Go right ahead. You want a cowhide rug to bring out that rustic spunk?

Even better!

Rugs are also a great way to incorporate some texture into the room and add some comfort under your feet after a long, long day. When you’re decorating a room with that bohemian feel, understand that rugs are meant to be bold, unique, and funky.

Modern Boho Accessories For Any Room

When accessorizing a room, you have the choice to take a minimal approach or go all out. To incorporate western-boho style, you’ll want to take a little from both worlds. Some modern accessories and western accessories are easy to mix, just be cautious that tones don’t clash.


Plants do wonders for a home — not only do they look beautiful, but if you make the right selection, they can also be air-purifying. Some great indoor plants are: spider plants, Dracaena, Boston fern, and aloe vera. They are easy to manage, remove pollutants from the room, and add some western-boho style to the mix.

Western Chic Touches

Adding dimension and texture to a room can be accomplished in many ways. Walls are a perfect, blank canvas to express your personality. Adding a bull skull or your favorite western paintings to a wall or accent table are great ways to incorporate some western fun.

You can also hang up some macramé, simple or intricate, to add texture to the walls. Whether it be a hanging plant holder, a bookshelf, or wall décor, macramé pieces come in many forms so the possibilities are endless.

Luxury Accent Pieces

When you think of accent pieces, think of pieces that catch your eye as soon as you enter a room — pieces that add some flair to any corner or table. You can add some western style by incorporating pieces such as a cross for a side table or unique barware for a living-room bar cart.
